Euphorbia woodii

The name of this beloved succulent was chosen in honor of the British botanist John Medley Wood. It is one of the so-called "medusa’s head plants", so called because of its globose caudiciform stem, flattened at the apex, from which depart, just like the hair of the mythological monster Medusa, serpentiform branches, cylindrical and tapered. The whole plant is completely covered by rather protruding hexagonal tubercles, adorned at times by microscopic leaflets that, falling, leave on the surface small white dots in strong contrast with the bright dark green of E. woodii. During the flowering period the long branches are enriched with small but pretty yellow flowers!
